Many of us go through life under the influence of negative habits from our past, and become the ‘victims’ of the unpleasant results of these habits. It can be a struggle to change our habits and thought patterns.
Karma is a Sanskrit word meaning action or work. It also signifies cause and effect, whereby each action a person performs in life – including thoughts and speech – will affect him or her at some point in the future.
Through karma, we receive the lessons we need to learn so that we can evolve spiritually. Everything that happens in our lives occurs because of karma, because of our past actions, including those from previous lives.
This means that everything we experience happens for a reason – nothing is insignificant.
We have the power to create both good and bad experiences, and we can learn to reduce and even eliminate the regretful poor choices that we make, that may be at the expense of someone else or of ourselves. But both ‘bad’ and ‘good’ karma enchain us in our spiritual evolution, slowing our journey on the path to liberation.
Discover profound insights into the nature of karma, and some methods for your transformation and for ‘burning’ your karma.
